Pratt & Whitney Canada Corp. (P&WC) Unveils Eagle Plus™ Warranty Program

NBAA, ORLANDO, FLORIDA--(CCNMatthews - Nov. 9, 2005) - NBAA - Pratt & Whitney Canada Corp. (P&WC), a United Technologies Corp. (NYSE:UTX) company, is pleased to introduce the Eagle Plus™ Warranty Program, offering enhanced coverage for the PT6A, PT6T and JT15D engine series.

"The Eagle Plus™ Warranty Program offers a welcomed complement to the existing P&WC warranty coverage through specific types of coverage for engine chargeable unscheduled removals," says Maria Della Posta, P&WC's Vice President, Customer Support. "It further underscores our commitment to be the leading provider of innovative, cost effective and global aftermarket solutions."

The new program has been carefully designed to offer an expanded coverage menu between P&WC's standard warranty and its Eagle Service Program (ESP®), which provides effective maintenance cost management. Eagle Plus™ offers operators a menu of highly attractive coverage options specifically tailored to their needs. They may select one or more options depending on their requirements for a one-time annual payment that is based on their specific engine model and operation. The options can also be renewed or cancelled on an annual basis and are transferable upon the sale of an aircraft.

The Eagle Plus™ Warranty Program was developed in collaboration with P&WC's worldwide Customer Support network in response to input from customers. "Although customers tell us that P&WC's Warranty is one of the best in the business, we wanted to further improve our service, and offer an innovative extended coverage plan," says Mrs. Della Posta. "The Eagle Plus™ Warranty program provides customized - and cost-effective - solutions to avoid unanticipated repair costs in the event of an unscheduled removal."

The Eagle Plus™ Warranty coverage currently offered under the program includes:

- Basic Coverage Extension out to the TBO: "Basic Coverage" for unscheduled event removals will be extended from the current First Run limit to the P&WC published first Time Between Overhaul (TBO) period.

- Repair Cost Management: This coverage limits the operator's financial exposure against an unexpected repair.

- Support Engine Coverage: Offers complete rental coverage to enable no hassle continued operation while the operator's engine is being repaired.

P&WC's Customer Support experts will assist customers in determining which option or options could be best suited to their needs. Full details of the program, advice and price quotations are available through P&WC designated facilities, P&WC Sales Representatives or P&WC Field Service Representatives, as well as directly from P&WC's Warranty Administration. Once a decision has been reached, a customer's application will be sent to P&WC's Warranty Administration, which will prepare a contract for signature.
